...again, the government fails.

''According to the Turkish News Agency-Cyprus (TAK), a statement was released about the government's resignation following a meeting between President Tatar and Prime Minister Faiz Sucuoğlu.''

...the cabinet will keep their posts until a new government is formed.

You got to feel for the TCs that did not vote for these parties but I have no sympathy for those who boycotted the election.

...the UBP takes leadership, and the coalition remains the same.

...yes, i agree boycotts do not facilitate change, making the effort to vote by destroying the ballot sends a much clearer message, in large enough numbers, that candidates cannot ignore.

The Turkish Cypriot prime minister on Saturday submitted his resignation to the president of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC).


...i'm confused.

''In his first statement after his resignation, Sucuoğlu said, “A new election is on the horizon.”''

“Ankara’s intervention is obvious,” Doğuş Derya of CTP tells the Sunday Mail. “Nobody denied this anyway. It is certain that there was a direct intervention.”

The media also wrote extensively about Ankara’s hand in the developments.

“Everyone, in off-the-record conversations, even gives the names of those, who intervened…” wrote journalist Serhat Incirli in his column in the daily Yenidüzen. “DP and YDP decided not to be in the government due to some hard pressurising, provoking, intimidating, suggesting… [They] could not withstand the pressure and the blackmailing… The reality is looking us in the eye. The reality is the reality of a coloniser and a colony. They are telling us: ‘We will rule you’… And they are telling us: ‘To hell with the Turkish Cypriot community.’


How did it start?

Ankara’s intervention against Sucuoğlu is believed to have started at the November 2020 General Assembly of UBP, where he was leading the race to be elected the party leader. After coming out in the lead in the first round, Sucuoğlu mysteriously withdrew his candidacy, together with the other runner up, Hasan Taçoy, amid rumours of an intervention by Ankara. However, in what was seen as a playoff, Sucuoğlu won a sweeping victory, with 61 per cent of the votes at the General Assembly in late 2021.

At the time, journalist Hasan Kahvecioğlu described this as the “UBP voters’ democratic uprising against AKP.” Kahvecioğlu could, however, foresee that Ankara would seek revenge.

“This uprising by UBP will cost Turkish Cypriots a lot,” wrote Kahvecioğlu. “They will make Faiz Sucuoğlu curse the day he was born. Probably his prime ministry will not last long.”

There are different scenarios as to why Ankara does not want Sucuoğlu, ranging from him belonging to another sect of Islam, to him having gained too much power in the Turkish Cypriot politics.

“Faiz Sucuoğlu is not wanted by the Gods,” says political scientist Sertaç Sonan. “There is a lot of bad blood there… We are used to Ankara treating the left badly, but now it’s also treating the right badly… The mistake is that many politicians here still think they have a room for manoeuvre despite Ankara. And Sucuoğlu is one of them.”

Mr. Sucuglu keeps his word. When establishing the old government, he said, "These ministries are not permanent, we will change them occasionally." He has accomplished an important job by adding himself to this change.

Job done

Without a solution to the Cyprus problem what difference will it make to the north?

...a person like Toufan can do a lot with men like Akinci and Mavroyiannis giving him support. Even Sucuoğlu may join them (or with another Greek Cypriot Party) if it is to fight against the "Greekness" and the "Turkishness" that they all know all too well.

(...if DISY is wise, as a Cypriot Party, they would be looking at their electorate differently, and more broadly as well; AKEL at present has this advantage.)
